For most women, pregnancy is a wonderful and life-altering experience that culminates in the miracle of childbirth. However, there is no question that pregnancy can greatly alter the female physiology, leaving many mothers wishing to regain their pre-baby breasts, tummies, thighs, and skin.

Many women are turning to “Mommy Makeovers”—combination procedures that target several areas of the body at once for surgical correction.

What to Expect After a Pregnancy

With pregnancy inevitably comes psychological stresses, awkward and uncomfortable weight gain, and hormonal imbalances. Together, these factors can have a significant impact on how your body processes and stores food, how your skin looks and feels, and even how your limbs move and function. Pregnancy often causes:

  • Gain or loss of breast volume and drooping.
  • Loose skin and the development of stretch marks.
  • Development of stubborn pockets of fat in the tummy and thighs.
  • Sagging skin that “pooches” around the belly button and lower middle of the abdomen.
  • Loss of tightness and shape of the labial and vaginal structures.

What to Expect After a Mommy Makeover

For those with one or more areas of concern post-pregnancy, a Mommy Makeover can provide a comprehensive and completely customizable solution. Some of the more popular procedures included in Mommy Makeovers include liposuction or i-Lipo, breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, buttock lift, labiaplasty, and face or neck lift.

When executed together, patients can enjoy shorter recovery periods, lower costs, and more comprehensive results. If you undergo a Mommy Makeover, you can expect to regain your feminine contours and take on the role of motherhood feeling as confident in your appearance as you did pre-pregnancy.
